  1. Go directly to the folder in Explorer/Finder

    A one-click solution that takes me from a specific Box location in the web browser to the same location in Windows Explorer on my computer.
    Essentially, the opposite of "View on Box.com" Windows Explorer feature.

  2. Ability to exclude syncing certain files by type.

    Box Drive - exclude syncing certain files by type. I use several software that use this lock file approach and the lock files should NEVER be synced. (sometimes for size reasons, sometimes for frequent uploads and deletes)

  3. List View of Marked For Offline Files

    It is imperative that we have a view of which folders we have Make Available Offline. We can't hunt and peck through hundreds of folders with a Green Checkmark on it to Make Available Online Only when we're finished with a big "sync". This is already a hoop we're jumping through because we can't "sync" to an external drive so we have to manually manage internal Hard Drive space. A user should be able to see what they have marked for offline at a glance so they can easily reverse the storage affect on local hard drives.

  4. Open a file in web apps immediately when clicking on link in Box web file browser

    Currently, clicking on a link opens a new tab in the web browser with a preview of the file and the option to open the file in a web app. There should be a preference to open the file directly in a web app or to generate the preview screen. The preview screen would be useful if the text of the displayed document could be copied without line breaks at the end of each displayed line. I often open many documents per session to copy snippets, but have to take the extra step of opening the doc in a web…

  5. Box drive won't show files that don't sync

    We have many department users uploading files to Box via Box drive but sometimes Box drive won't upload all the files due to a certain discrepancy. There is no error on Box drive and the only way to find this is to check for the number files on Box web as compared to the number of files on Box drive for the particular folder. This is very concerning and Box drive should either show the list of files not uploaded to Box or shouldn't allow users to upload files using Box drive. I hope there will be a fix released…

  6. Sync multiple accounts to Box Drive

    Allow multiple accounts to sync with Box Drive.

    Many of us have multiple corporate/personal accounts that require local drive sync'd access.

    We’re not planning a ‘fast switch’ option to allow a user to easily switch between 2 different Box accounts on Box Drive while maintaining all cached data. The only option we have now is that users can ‘logout’ of their current account and sign into another account, but the caveat is that this will delete all their local cached data/MFO settings from Box Drive

  7. Show message trail for shared files

    It would be nice to have a record of the messages I've sent when sharing a file.

  8. Indicate when a file has been shared by me

    Indicate when a file has been shared by me. This used to be a feature (an icon would appear next to the file) that I relied on because I don't always remember if I've shared the file or not. Now I may send a certain file more than once to a particular person not remembering that I already sent it.

  9. Identify version limit limitations

    As limits on versions exists - and the most important for us is having access to the earlier versions - we would like a warning to happen when an earlier version is about to become unavailable - least then we know that we need to make some copies or alterations to how our drive is updating our files.

  10. Box Drive - Add Support for .pst Files

    While .pst files are visible from Box's web client, they are not visible from Box Drive. This results in an inability to connect .pst files from Box to Outlook, and is preventing us from rolling out Box across our enterprise.

  12. box drive metadata

    With some of the new updates coming to Metadata, I'd like to request that Box Drive be able to support updates to Metadata on a folder/file.

    As a start, a context menu option that would take a user directly to the metadata page.

  13. Box Drive Install - Convert Synced Files/Folder to Marked for Offline

    After installing Box Drive, the items that were previously synchronized with Box Sync should marked for offline. It is a disincentive for my team to have to resync all these folders. Additionally, the synced link on the web interface does not seem to serve a purpose since it does not reflect the items now marked for offline.

  15. Comments / Tasks from Desktop (Box Drive)

    In order to currently leave a comment on a file we have to right click on it, click on view on Box drive, which opens chrome, loads the file, then click on the comment icon on the right and then leave our comment

    A quicker and much simpler way of doing this would be to bring in comments and tasks into the box drive app to save us all of those steps of having to do this through our browser. There are a couple ways of doing this

    1) Bring in notifications, tasks and a comment stream into the system…

  16. Action Failed: Unsupported Name - no file path shown in tool tip

    For Box Drive errors where 'Action Failed: Unsupported Name' - the tool tip on hovering over the filename shows 'Unsupported Name on OS’, instead of the full file path (such as with 'Rename File Failed: Name Is Already Taken').

  17. Need Tags in Mac Finder to be Supported in Box Drive

    After installing Box Drive, you have to re-tag all of your folders in Finder. As if that is not annoying enough, the folders you tag (colored circles) don't show up when you click on the tags in the sidebar of Finder. Bottom line, Box Drive needs to support Tags in Mac OS' finder just like the Box Sync did.

  18. NetSuite integrations security enhancement.

    Allow the creation of a folder in Box that is secured by box, but the record is attached to the transaction. For example, under bill payments adding a box folder that can hold the contract for that specific payment. Contracts have more confidential information that needs to be secured. Since security in NetSuite is best used as a group, not all who can see if a payment was made, should see the details of the contract. Therefore the select folder should allow more restrictive security, managed by box.

  19. Box Drive Notification

    It would be nice to have a feature we can use to notify end users of the restriction to upload files at the root level in Box Drive. Right now we are depending on sync errors which can be easily dismissed by non technical users and I believe if a message was clearly displayed of the restriction It would cause less confusion and create a better user experience.

  20. Seamless Sign On - Box Drive

    Like OneDrive, we want the ability for the box drive client to seamlessly sign into box without any user integration at login. This will benefit;
    - VDI users
    - Hot desk users
    - Students (e.g. lab machines)
    - First time logon for staff allocated devices

    We understand this won't work for everybody but we to SSO to box via Azure AD and all of our 7,500 managed devices are joined to both on-premises AD and Azure AD. In fact we're starting have a slow migration to pure Azure AD.

    This has stopped any large scale rollout and we have seen…
